Recipe

This handsome multilayered crêpe stack is a fine way to utilize the leftover turkey from a roasted bird. A light Mornay sauce binds the sautéed mushrooms and turkey.

Yield: Makes 8 crêpes; serves 6

Ingredients

Mornay sauce:

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • ½ cup milk
  • ¾ cup chicken broth
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Gruyere cheese

Filling:

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 shallots or green onions (white part only), chopped
  • 1½ cups (12 ounces) sliced cultivated white mushrooms
  • 4½ cups (1¼ pounds) diced cooked turkey or chicken
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • ¼ cup shredded Gruyere cheese

Directions

Prepare the crêpes.

To make the Mornay sauce: In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter, add the flour, and cook, stirring, until the mixture is bubbly, about 1 minute. Add the milk, broth, salt and pepper to taste, and nutmeg and whisk until the sauce thickens and comes to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, whisking occasionally, for 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the Gruyère. Remove the pan from the heat and set aside.

In a large skillet over medium heat, melt 2 tablespoons butter and sauté the shallots for 1 minute, or until translucent. Add the mushrooms and sauté for 2 minutes, or until soft. Reserve 1/3 cup of the Mornay sauce for topping. Mix the mushrooms, turkey, and parsley into the pan with the remaining sauce.

Place a crêpe in a greased 9-inch pie pan and cover it with 2/3 cup of the filling. Cover with a second crêpe and repeat filling, stacking, and layering the remaining crêpes. Leave the top crêpe unfilled; spread the reserved Mornay sauce over it and sprinkle with the remaining ¼ cup Gruyere. If desired, cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours. Allow refrigerated crêpe cake to come to room temperature before baking.

To bake, preheat the oven to 375°F. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until heated through. Cut into wedges and serve at once.
